Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 8th, 1956. Due to poor attendance, The Mickey Mouse Club Circus, an attraction running since November 1955, closes. The 1st major addition to Disneyland, the circus was held in a tent (which was set-up in the area that later will house the Fantasyland Autopia). Capitalizing on the success of the Mickey Mouse Club TV series, the 75-minute circus show featured a cast of well-known Mousketeers in various roles. To watch a clip from the show: http://is.gd/HzIeBn do you remember this attraction? ✨
Also on this day in 1962, The Chicken Plantation Restaurant, in business since the park's opening day, closes in Frontierland. The space occupied by the restaurant is needed for the construction of New Orleans Square. Do you remember this restaurant?
